I am a 65 year old male living in Canada.

Drs have told me to loose 50 lbs .Present weight 230 lbs. Beginning to connect health issues to weight . From prostrate to knee problems and every Dr says loose the weight and you loose the problems.

Have started to walk at 240 lbs and seen improvement with loss of 10 lbs with diet and the daily walk.

Still need self motivation to keep on going.

Morning Jarowalk

Welcome to the weight loss forum.

Why not come along and join in with today weigh in.

Take a look at the Welcome Newbie post in the Pinned post section at the right hand side or at the bottom if your on a mobile. Have a look at the nhs 12 week plan, many members have had success following this plan. Use the BMI checker to work out your daily calorie allowance. Take your measurements at the start together with a photo so you can see the changes on the days the scales don't move.

Below the Pinned posts are the Topics where members share a range of weight related subjects.

Have a look at the Daily Diary which you can find on the Home page in Events. It is where all the members are sharing their daily plans on what they are eating and any exercise they are doing. This thread will give you some ideas on how to start.

We have daily weigh in's so why not come along and join us today. You can find the weigh ins on the Home page in the Events section on the right. Just click on the post in Events and record your start weight and any loss/gain or maintain for the week.

You may notice that members have a grey box next to their name, these are achievement badges. All new members have a "newbie" badge to begin with.

Please note if you are using the new HU app it does not have all the forums features on it, so we suggest you use the full website version.

To get the most of the forum be active, share tips, recipes and experiences. Read some of the posts they are very motivating.

Have a good first week.
